Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane took his tally to five goals for the season against Aston Villa.

Jamie Carragher has raved about Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane on Sky Sports’ website.

Kane made a slow start to the season, in a goalscoring sense, but he now has netted four times in his last two matches – and he seems to be back to his best.

And Carragher feels that the 22-year-old has now proved that he is the complete package, as he was contributing to the team even when he wasn't hitting the back of the net.

"There was a lot of talk about Kane possibly being a one-season wonder, but there's so much more to his game than goals," Carragher said.

"Even when he's going through a barren spell, he's the type of striker that brings more. His hold-up play was fantastic, and his awareness is great. People have spoken about a similarity with Teddy Sheringham.

"When he is scoring goals combined with his all-round play, he is the perfect package. That's why the manager never thought about leaving him out, even when he wasn't scoring at the start of the season."

Kane’s link-up play has come to the fore this season, and his ability to harry defenders has made him pivotal.

Although there was a realisation that Kane needed to start scoring more frequently to lead the line on a consistent basis, he still offered a lot to the side, and dropping him never really appeared to be an option for Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs have shown great faith in Kane, and he is currently the only out-and-out striker in their squad, meaning that he carries a lot of goalscoring responsibility.

With the England international now sitting on five goals for the campaign, he appears to be clicking into gear – and he will be determined to maintain his productive run of form as he looks to go close to matching last season’s tally of 21 Premier League goals.
